Yeah, I know he did himself in with drugs and maybe even more so with junk food ... I was just wondering if all that was a sort of escape from the unwanted guru stuff. My armchair psychoanalysis.

Good point!
When he first started with the persian, supposedly one of the things that he liked about it was that it took the edge off of things. Helped him to relax a bit and "get away' from they daily hassles of life as Jerry.

So in a way, I guess it did contribute more than I originally thought, as wanting / needing some sort of self medication was a result of the heavy load he felt was being placed upon him.
